What do we know from research about success in first year? Students are more What do we know from research about success in first year? Students are more likely to succeed if they: • Invest time on task time spent studying each week is the strongest predictor • Regularly attend lectures & tutorials increased learning opportunities also a strong predictor • Develop a social network at uni knowing one person’s name is a protective factor against dropping out • Have a clear goal or purpose for attending uni (sense of vocational direction & purpose especially) a strong predictor of success & protects against dropping-out • Engage with the online environment moderates success at university • Balance commitments (working on average not more than 15 hours a week in paid employment) making appropriate time for study predicts success • Have some sense of academic self-confidence predicts success (self-efficacy & an expectation of success is foundational to success in life)

What do we know from research about risk factors in first year? Students are What do we know from research about risk factors in first year? Students are more likely to drop-out or fail if they: • Don’t spend enough time outside of class to study each week • Don’t regularly attend lectures & tutorials • Don’t develop a social network at university • Don’t have a sense of purpose (esp vocational purpose) in their degree • Don’t have access to or engage with the online environment • Do work more than 25 hours per week while studying full time

Our own Griffith research with our FY students shows……. You may have lower marks Our own Griffith research with our FY students shows……. You may have lower marks in your First Semester of First Year if • You are the first member of your family (FIF) to attend university • Being first-in-family, means being the Pathfinder & Trailblazer for your family, & possibly your community/social group (a social justice issue about access to university)

Success in First Year! Question • Why are FIF students likely to have lower Success in First Year! Question • Why are FIF students likely to have lower marks in their first semester? • Have a think and a chat to the person beside you

Success in First Year! The reason for this is because you probably won’t have Success in First Year! The reason for this is because you probably won’t have the “academic capital” to allow you to “hit the ground running” in your first semester • It takes time to understand what is required of you ü in your new role as a university student & practitioner-in-training in psychology ü as a self-managing or independent learner who will be structuring your own time ü as a professional-in-training in your discipline – academic standards at uni are different & harder compared to those at high school!

The Good News is that national research evidence shows…. • Despite low access rates, The Good News is that national research evidence shows…. • Despite low access rates, the success rate (or tendency to pass their year’s subjects) of First-in-Family students (including those from a low socio-economic background) is 97% of the pass rates of second generation students & those from a medium to high socioeconomic background & has been stable over the last 9 years. (Bradley et al, 2008: 30) • Which means YOU CAN DO THIS! • This success rate is, however, premised on your coming to class each week, studying each week, & participating in a range of support systems (e. g. , Academic Support Workshops, peer mentoring, study groups, PASS, Learning & Counselling services support etc. ) offered by the School & the University to build your academic capital more quickly

Success in First Year! • Thus, failure or lower performance on assessment items in Success in First Year! • Thus, failure or lower performance on assessment items in your first semester or first year simply means that you do yet understand the standard of work required for success in your discipline of study, or are not putting sufficient time into your study • Failure does NOT MEAN that you are not smart enough, and the data on first year performance throughout Australia confirms that you are all smart enough to get your degree!

What do we know about the profile of our Griffith Students? Compared to other What do we know about the profile of our Griffith Students? Compared to other Australian universities our students: • Work longer hours in paid employment you will need to monitor your work-study balance to create the conditions for your success • Are more likely to be the ‘”first in their family’’ (FIF) to attend University * Psychology Mt Gravatt = 70% approx you will need to pick up the supports we are offering in your Transition Program • Griffith has the 3 rd highest Indigenous student intake • Griffith has the 6 th highest intake of students from low socioeconomic or disadvantaged backgrounds (a strong social justice agenda)

What do we know about the benefits of having a uni degree? We know What do we know about the benefits of having a uni degree? We know that a degree will TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE for the BETTER & FOREVER! • Social standing & status • Economic – income, housing, holidays • Health – live longer, lower incidence of major illness, lower incidence of high risk drinking practices in young men

The myth of entry OP! • • OP is about getting in……. ENTRY OP The myth of entry OP! • • OP is about getting in……. ENTRY OP is not about getting on…. . SUCCESS OP has a relationship with high results (HDs & Ds) in first year courses in psychology, BUT OP has no relationship with PASSES, CREDITS or FAILS in first year Psychology OP has no relationship to GRADUATING with your degree OP has no relationship to SUCCESS as a Practitioner OP does not necessarily equal ability - many smart people have low OPs TIME & EFFORT invested is the KEY to SUCCESS So forget your OP & focus on your GPA The fact that you have been accepted into this course means YOU ARE CAPABLE OF FINISHING YOUR DEGREE!
